This collection contains a number of different materials, including a scrapbook and photographs, newspaper clippings, letters, publications, and programs from both Tau Delta chapter and the national sorority. A majority of these materials are from the 1930’s and 1940’s, when Gamma Phi became Chi Omega. They focus on a number of events, including the installation banquet, a national conference, and an anniversary dinner, and many are associated with the Alumnae Chapter Ramer helped to establish in Gettysburg. Ramer was a national officer in Chi Omega at the time, and involved in planning a number of these events, and her scrapbook includes photographs, programs and menus from the Chi Omega National Convention in 1938. This collection would be useful to anyone interested in the history of Greek life on campus, the Chi Omega sisterhood, or how sororities operated in the early to mid 20th century.
